Cook the ingredients, stirring often, until fragrant and golden, about 10 minutes. Add the marinated meat, scraping the marinade from the dish into the pot. Add the coconut juice or beef stock and cover the pot. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Add the lemongrass, star anise, cinnamon stick, chilies, and annatto seeds and simmer covered (occasionally turning the meat) over low heat for 2 hours.
